The original Rapunzel is completely different than the one we know. It is a darker story where her parents are poor and so they give her away to a sorceress and she is locked up in a tower at the age of twelve. The reason they have to give her away is because the father stole a herd named rapunzel. Although, it is similar in a way to both the film and book since they are looking for the herb. In the story, they never mention the parents again.
For the most part in her life, her mother isolated and imprisoned her from everyone. She was unable “to leave the apartment for anything other than school”, which left her with what she claims as “nothing that could help me fit in with the other kids.” She was so devoid of social interactions and freedom that when she was thirteen years old and met Charlene, she attempted to emulate her because she was “jealous of her life.” She tried to do everything in her power to mature. She was even willing to exchange her morals and values to have what she believed to allow her to have power and control. She followed Charlene into the car of older boys whom she didn't even know. She let Rodney (one of the older boys) have his way with her without any hesitations.
Imagine if you were facing social issues as a 16 year old with cancer. How would you react to knowing you won't be able to play any sports, or do activities most people do without thinking twice about how grateful they are? What would that say about your character? The Fault in our Stars is a story about a teenage girl with cancer who struggles to fit in with society, but then she discovers the love of her life, Augustus Waters. “Hop Frog” is a story about a dwarf jester, who was taken from his home, and mistreated the king and his cabinet.
I feel that Demeter meets a lot of the stages of being a hero. she has a call to adventure when her daughter goes missing, she has a refusal to call when she finds out that her daughter has been married off to Hades, she fits into the ordeal stage because she causes the crops to stop growing all around the world and she fits the resurrection stage because once she finally sees her daughter she turns to her old self and brings the crops back. I think she is different than other hero’s because she doesn’t do anything that signifies she is heroic, she is god, and she gave up on getting what was hers back rather than do what other heroes have done.
Growing up as a middle child is not easy. If it was an option I think that no one should have to be the middle child, but it is something that I have learned to deal with throughout my 13 years of experience. Ever since I was a little kid I was never the favorite. The favorite child is always either the oldest because they are the parents first child or the youngest because they are the cutest, but this is often not the case for the middle child. I think this is unfair because the middle child could be both smart and cute, even though they are always looked past.
It is not his decision that we commit these sins but it was already written and that is why our fate is already destined for us because as much as we would want to change but maybe changing is already written in our fate that's why there are people who feel are fated into doing change for the better but it could always be there trickster side because some forms of evil in the world today is tricking and lying such as in the “epic of gilgamesh” when humbaba tried to turn against his master because he was defeated in battle and he cried for help from the gods but he already finished his purpose in life and that was his
If Anna could go back in time just once she would want to go back to Ancient Greece to see how they functioned back then. Anna is not allowed to have a job due to all the work that goes into being apart of the band. Which is one of the reasons she likes being a teenager however she doesn’t like the fact she is never taken seriously. Anna seems to be a well put together person until it comes to thunderstorms because her cousin was nearly struck by
The hero commits or fails to commit actions that hurt other people. These are characters with moral flaws, and the stories drive toward the moment when the hero uncovers his or her moral blindness. While Ransom Stoddard is depicted as a coward, he attempts to face this in the duel against Liberty Valance. While this would have been the moment Stoddard faces this flaw, it ends up being taken away from him with the help of his “partner in crime” Tom Doniphan. Indeed, Stoddard would have most likely died in that duel if it weren’t for Doniphan’s’ help, Stoddard still ended up being the coward he always was, and ends up being rewarded for it as being elected as the towns representative in Washington,
If he gets knocked down he gets back up. However, he carries great guilt on him for leaving his family. He also feels guilty for putting the Hubermann’s in danger, but one must do such sacrifices to survive and only hope it will be all over soon. The Book Thief focuses on humans. It clearly shows we are not perfect.
What these symbolic forms mean is that Teiresias was trying to inform Oedipus that whatever is done in the dark will come to light and everyone will know the full truth about you. Then his prophecy came true and he does not like the effect it has on him. Therefore, Oedipus himself cannot believe he found out that he had married his own mother and had children with her. But not only that he found out he was the murderer who killed King Laius (his father) and was destroying his town apart trying to find out who the murderer is and blaming other people. So his reaction was to physically blind himself so he won’t have to see all the wrongs he has done and to leave Thebes so the town can live in
It is important for a person to know their true identity. If they do not know their true identity then they are not truly themselves, they are someone or something else. Most people choose to ignore who they really are because they are afraid that people will make fun of them for being different, but being different is a good thing and that should never hold anybody back. In fact, it should make people proud that no one else is quite like them. For example, Hercules and April both were left out because they were different, but they used their differences from others and became leaders where they were.
